Saint Joseph's has been providing distance education for working adults in some form since 1976, so the school's extensive online offerings are a natural extension of that legacy. The school cites its long experience with educating adult students in explaining how it has built some of the best online college courses in Maine. Saint Joseph's curriculum is both broad and deep, with undergraduate offerings covering accounting and finance, health administration, and theology, as well as specialty offerings like the B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies with an Accounting minor (perfect for the humanities student who is an aspiring CPA).
